FBI & IRS Raid Homes & Office of Baltimore Mayor

HeadlineApr 26, 2019

Calls are growing for the mayor of Baltimore, Maryland, Catherine Pugh, to resign after the FBI and IRS raided her two homes and her City Hall office as part of a probe into her business dealings. Part of the probe may center on the mayor making more than $700,000 by selling large quantities of her self-published children’s books to businesses with government ties, including the University of Maryland Medical System. Pugh has been on indefinite leave since April 1. Following the FBI raid, Maryland Republican Governor Larry Hogan called on her to resign.
